Wrongful death is a phrase that describes a death caused by the negligence, recklessness, malpractice or intentional act of another person. Wrongful death lawsuits allow the family of a wrongful death victim to be compensated for their grief and suffering, funeral costs, lost wages, loss of companionship, medical expenses and punitive damages (to punish wrongdoers for reckless or intentional acts and prevent them from causing harm to others in the future). The victim’s parents, spouse, and children are almost always eligible to file a wrongful death claim. In some cases, other family members such as stepparents, grandparents, and dependents may also be permitted to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
